Abstract:

A charges test particle passing thorugh an electron plasma is subject to a drag force. The caluclation of the drag, when the test particles velocity is maintained at a constant value, is referred to as the plasma test particle problem. Several calculations of the drag have been given, but all treatments have resulted in a logarithmically diverging drag expression. The purpose of this dessertation is to give a convergent and consistent treatment of the plasma test particle problem. Author
